For my 30th birthday we took a family trip to San Diego. That's right one of us isn't a 20-something anymore! My MIL, BIL and SIL flew out from their respective homes in the Midwest to spend a few days in sunny California with us.California wasn't as sunny as usual, but we still had an excellent time.
We spent four hours on a awesome cameraman searching for whales. It was exciting. I felt like we were on a hunt. Our weapon a camera of course. We saw lots of the whale, but this short video is all I was able to capture of him surfacing. He will have to live on in my memories only.
Please excuse the narration, or lack there of. We were a bit excited. Groans and grunts were all I could get out in all the excitement.<>Nicole<>
I don't think I have ever made a post like this. I try to only write about things that we are doing and seeing in our travels, not on opinions and such. This is just something I would like other to be aware of. Ryan and I have a great passion for exploring Native American sites. This intaglio of Kokopilli is one of the most coolest things I have ever seen. To bad when we finally hike out to it it will have a road going through it. There are (were) tons of large earth works constructed along the Colorado River from Needles, CA to Yuma, AZ. Few people know of them besides the protected site north of Blythe, CA. This is an extremely sacred area to the Colorado River tribes. So sacred in fact, that they are said to be able to travel the ancient foot trail that leads from Needles to Yuma in their dreams. I know there isn't much interest in preservation of these sites to most. I just felt I should do my part to make others aware that there is an issue with destruction of these (and many many others) sites. <>Nicole<>
